A1094 to Snape and Aldeburgh opening ahead of time

Following a recent meeting with Anglian Water the Aldeburgh Business Association is delighted to
announce that the A1094, from the A12 to Snape and Aldeburgh,will be re-opening on Saturday 26th
in the evening.


Anglian Water have made excellent progress despite many challenges and issues with existing water
mains and have worked closely with Essex and Suffolk Water, not only to complete the project in
record time, but to replace the water pipes as part of the project. Like the majority of businesses the
weather has proved to be an added challenge and created it’s own problems but, despite this, work
has been completed over a month ahead of schedule.

Following meetings with Naomi Tarry, Chair of Aldeburgh Business Association and Director of
Best of Suffolk, prior to the work starting the estimated length of the project was reduced from 90
days to just 49. Anglian Water and their partners Barhale were able to dramatically reduce the
length of the works due to increased resources, changing the work methods and working extended
hours and weekends.

Temporary 2 way traffic lights will, however, be operational from Monday 28th May to Wednesday
30th May in the evening outside Church Garage at the junction of Wadd Lane, with the A1094 being
fully operational from Thursday 31st May ready for the many celebrations taking place for the
Queen’s Diamond Jubilee over the weekend.

Suffolk County Council Highways Department have been most proactive and accommodating in
changing the diversions and signage, as well as dealing with issues relating to speed restrictions to
reflect requests from residents in Snape, Friston and Sternfield, minimising the impact on the

Anglian Water and their participating contractor Barhale would like to thank the residents and
businesses in Snape, Aldeburgh and the surrounding area for their patience, support and
understanding whilst these essential works took place.
